Question about GoVideo Go Video DVD/VCR Combo

1 Answer

Go Video Dual Deck VR2940

All of a sudden, the DVD tray will not close. Each time I click the remote or use the manual button to open/close the tray, the tray opens, closes and then opens again. When I finally DID get it to stay closed, the disc will not play, and the machine freezes.

I've tried turning off the machine. I've tried disconnecting it and reconnecting.
Still, the same dilemma.

Any help would be so greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Dear thenmoneypitt,

    I thank you SO very much for taking the time out to help a total stranger. Honestly, I thought it a longshot that anyone would reply, and am truly touched by your extending your knowledge, energy and time.

    I'm a little hesitant to open up the unit, as I'm not well versed with things of this nature, but I suppose there's a first for everything, so I will give it a go! If I don't find anything, I think I may just cash in my chips and look for another unit, as repairs cost almost as much as new machines do these days, so it might not be worth the investment.

    Again, my sincere thanks for all of your kindness and expertise. May it come back to you, when you need it, - tenfold.

    Sincerely,
    bettysgaragesale

Hello bettysgarage. A common malfunction in DVD players. The mechanics has a bad part or something is jamed in the rails, arms, lifts, ect. I suggest you unpluge the AC, remove the case screws(note witch screw went were), and look internaly for something in the mechanics, thread, paper, loose paper clip, ect. Carefully postion unit and reconnect the AC so you may see the action of the disk tray in motion. Please be careful you have AC power and can get SHOCKED if you touch the circuit or wire terminals. When no object is found you have a bad DVD that would require a local service technican to repair unless you are technically inclined to vinture futher. Good Luck.

    Thank you for the reply. Good Luck.

    I sorry. I need to mention when you are inside with AC unpluged, reseat or wiggle the interconnecting cable or wireing in the unit to all the sockets or sensors. A loose connection may be a problem. Also check for obstruction in the laser switch sensors, clean with a Q-tip.

You can check this has worked by pressing ' 0009 OK ' on your remote after the tray has closed. A display will pop up on screen showing the Region as 0.

Tne dvd door will not open


These are instructions to open door if DVD is jammed or the DVD recorder wont open.

Unscrew the 7 cover screws and the 2 foot screws. Remover player cover.

Pry the front control cover off from the top of the player and not the bottom with a thin screw driver paying attention not to crack or break the tabs. Just lift them enough to clear the hooks.Then lower the cover withut removing it so you can gain access to the DVD front internal bezel.

On the left side of the DVD recorder there is a notch with a lever in it. gently push on it as this is the release for the DVD door. Remove DVD from tray and close.

Re-install all covers and screws. Machine should work after this.

DVD tray will not open


When a disk is stuck inside the player , try following the procedure below:

Unplug power cord.
Plug back power.
Turn on the unit and press repeatedly the eject button at the same time. If you successeed in ejecting the disk before the player starts reading TOC(disk initial track), then the disk will eject.
If that does not work, then there is an internal fault, in that case the unit must be taken apart to remove the disk.
